Kamala Harris, a Democratic Senator from California, tweeted, "Today's vote on #Net Neutrality is one of the most impactful votes the U.S. Senate has ever taken on the future of the internet".

Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made an even stronger statement on Twitter: "There's never been a more important vote in the Senate for the future of the internet". "As this measure heads to the House, it would be prudent for members to take note of this sustained outcry and vote to preserve net neutrality". "It's time for the Senate to do the hard work necessary to find a bipartisan, sustainable path forward that would protect consumers and provide certainty for innovators and small businesses".
